FCP/Mac --> PPro/Win7

I have some HDV footage I've captured from tape on my Mac with FCP. My associate is editing on his PPro on Windows and he can't see any video from the Quicktime file, but he gets the audio. It's obviously a codec problem and I read about this in a few places but I didn't catch what the solution is.

His laptop doesn't have a firewire port otherwise I'd simply hand him the tape and camera and have him import it.

Should I be capturing it to a different codec in FCP that PPro/Win will recognize?

The thing is that some FCP captured mov files cant be read on a PC...

Those files require a mac, and on top of that they require FCP to be installed before you can play them back..

There is a company: http://www.calibratedsoftware.com/ which makes FCP captured HDV files readable on a PC

Or you can capture in ProRes instead of regular HDV
